    I have never come across a hand mirror made of plastic that was so pretty. There is a little blob of a foil label left on the back (3rd photo). I don't think it was part of a set. The handle is angled rather than rounded or like a paddle, which makes it seem Art Deco. I see what looks like a seam down the side, so that eliminates Bakelite. In great condition, aside from the usual signs of wear. I have just one other hand mirror, an arts and crafts type, hand beaten copper and enamel on wood. I use it every single day.
    So - off to see if I can find another one of these online somewhere.

    Thanks for stopping to admire the pigeon cage reflected in the mirror, LOL!

      I agree, this is very pretty! Love all that marbling! Happy new year!

      I have a few items of this marbled hard plastic - my Plano tackle box, a vanity mirror that holds cotton balls and a drinking glass (ick, I wouldn't drink out of it). This type of plastic is from 60's-70's (as you know) and when it's scratched is crappy looking, but when it's perfect like your mirror! Gorgeous.

      Obviously no pidgeons in your life right now? :-)

      What is the cage for?
    4. Efesgirl Efesgirl, 5 years ago
      Val - that's the house/cage for the young ones for next year. There are three other buildings on the property, all filled with pigeons!
    5. Efesgirl Efesgirl, 5 years ago
      SpiritBear - for the young homing pigeons, which are not yet born. There are a total of four pigeons houses in my backyard.

      Cute mirror, the shape is very stylish!

      How many pigeons do you have?
      Would love to see them! I raised several babies fallen from balcony in Paris, they learnt to fly in my flat before being released :-D
